Terrible Games, Tony Vasinda and Johnny Isorena, asked for $1,000 during Zine Quest 3 to make the tabletop game of upchuck and grime. There’s more than a week left on the clock, and nearly 150 backers have given the team more than $3,000.
What’s Repugnant? Gross-out humour with bile and puke. Welcome to The Crust, toe jam-packed with adventure. You can check out the latest tally or even join in on the project page.
Repugnant is not an RPG in which you play a dashing hero or even the villain. In this zine RPG, you’re a fart huffing Dweller, just trying to work through the day in The Crust.
The book will be 40-pages long, have five races and unique mutations, there’s five different locations, more than a dozen creatures and character sheets. The art is by Terrible Games’ John de Campos.
You pick your way over the heap of discarded disposable diapers and crest the hill. You feel your bowels squelch and the air thicken as you summon the power of smellomancy from within. Your pock covered companion greasily slips along near the moist pools of vomit surrounding the Yecchy’s layer and collects a sample of their tainted bile. As they close the top of their Burperware container a moldy can of half-eaten anchovies skitters down one of the nearby slopes of garbage, heated to near perfection by the midday sun. Your companion pauses and listens, moving their hand up to pop a zit at the Yecchy should it awaken…
A pledge of $9 will get you a PDF copy of the game and digital ‘retch’ goals. Dig up $15 and shipping, and you’ll get the Repugnant dead tree zine sent to you.
You can pledge higher, offering $25 for a signed copy and a sack of chits in addition to the digital copies and physical stretch goals.
The estimated delivery of the zine is in October. Now, experienced Kickstarter backers know projects are almost always delayed (sometimes by global pandemics), but if all goes to schedule, then Repugnant could be a game you have to play for Halloween this year.
